beeswax




bunny and the daffodil my son Bruno made for me for Mother's Day

MATERIAL: colored beeswax from achildsdream.com
TOOLS: hands and scissors and a little roller or dowel for cutting petals, though I think these were done by flattening and pinching
NOTES: The wax often needs warming up before it can be shaped. We like this rhyme to say while we hold the wax and wait: "Warm hands, warm, the farmer's gone to plow. If you want to warm your hands, warm your hands now."
